General Dynamics Receives $80 Million for Satellite Communications Antennas

August 27, 2010
By George Seffers

General Dynamics SATCOM Technologies received an $80 million contract from Harris Corporation to design, manufacture and install six new 16-meter antennas and upgrade four 9-meter satellite communications antennas. Supporting the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration's new Geostationary Operational Environmental Satellite R series (GOES-R) program, the antennas will enable critical command, control, telemetry and sensor data communications between satellites and ground stations. The system supports weather forecasting, severe storm tracking and meteorology research.
